When former Nashville police detective Summer Walsh visits her favorite B&B in Charleston, South Carolina, during the Christmas holiday, she discovers the innkeeper's dead body. What she'd hoped would be a relaxing holiday between jobs turns into a stressful and often frustrating experience with another innkeeper who didn't like the victim, a man who toys with elderly women's emotions, an ex-con who will do anything for money, and a very disloyal housekeeper.

Summer Walsh will do anything to avoid going back into law enforcement, so when she has an opportunity to leave Nashville and run a day care center in Atlanta, she grabs it. To her parents' chagrin, she stumbles on another dead body and can't resist the urge to get involved. Over the next several days, Summer encounters several suspects including a man who has threatened to take down the victim's tree that drops fruit into his yard, a nosy neighbor, a man who will stop at nothing to get her car, and the garden club president who thinks the victim is pond scum.
Summer Walsh has barely gotten into her new temp job when she is called back to Atlanta to help figure out who murdered the owner of a daycare center. Not one to say no when someone needs her, she drops everything and goes. It's not easy to weed through suspects that range from a gold-digging, estranged wife and money-grubbing brother to a bunch of daycare workers who each had their own bone to pick with the victim.
